Eyelid Lifts aren’t Just Cosmetic

You know to expect wrinkles on your skin as you age, but when was the last time you considered the impacts of aging on your eyes? It’s very common for the eyelids to droop and sag as they surrender to gravity. This unwanted effect of aging doesn’t just cause you to look older, but it also impacts your overall health and quality of life.

Fortunately, you can undergo a minor procedure known as an eyelid lift to reverse sagging eyelids, enhance your appearance, and reduce associated issues and symptoms. Eyelid lifts do more than just improve aesthetics!

Why Are Your Eyelids Drooping?

All skin loses its firmness as you age. By the time you turn 30 and continue into your 40s, your body produces less and less collagen and elastin each year. This might cause your eyelids to stretch and the muscles supporting them to become weaker with time.

Are you noticing stores of fat creating a saggy, droopy appearance around your eyes? This might impact the upper lids and create bags under the eyes, which in turn leads to conditions like poor vision, headaches, and more.

Minimize Vision Problems

Baggy and droopy upper eyelids aren’t just unattractive; they can interfere with your vision as well. During blepharoplasty surgery, your plastic surgeon will remove excess skin, muscle, and fat. This process eliminates everything that previously obscured your vision to help you see much better than before.

Reduce Migraines

Migraines occur when certain nerves are triggered and send sensations of pain coursing through the skull and body. A blepharoplasty surgery can actually reduce the occurrence of your migraines by adjusting the offending nerve to prevent future triggers. This has led to significant migraine reduction in many eyelid surgery patients.

Schedule Your Blepharoplasty With An Expert

Aside from the cosmetic benefits of eyelid surgery, you will enjoy unobscured vision, increased comfort, and enhanced confidence after your procedure. It’s important to schedule your eyelid surgery with an experienced plastic surgeon who will approach your surgery with the precision and care required for such a delicate part of the body.
